5:33 am
presidencovid relief it did pass the house after 2:00 in the morning but without a single republican vote and the package did not get every democrat to say yes. because of the scale of the spending in this package but it is still important progress toward what could become the president's first legislative victory. a major development early this morning. the house passed the massive covid relief package carried by democrats both with every republican and two moderate democrats opposed to the $1.9 trillion size of the pa critica for aid. like $1,400 direct checks and enhanced unemployment benefits while the house included a federal minimum wage increase to $15, that is not expected to go forward in the senate. speaker pelosi promises to try again.
5:34 am
>> we will not rest until we pass the $15 minimum wage. >> on friday, president biden delivered a trust me message to build vaccine acceptance >> the vaccines are safe i promise you. they are safe and effective. >> with a third brand of vaccine on the way, the president visited a mega texas vaccination center and met airmen on duty there to help. the biden administration says it will give states more information on available vaccine supply to improve scheduling of shots. framing his plan as patriot. >> this can be a great american achievement. being the only country in the world to reach 100 million shots in 100 days. >> turning to foreign policy, president biden made his first comment on the air strike he ordered, putting iran on notice. >> what message were you sending to iran with your first military action >> you can't get -- you can't act with impunity.
5:35 am
be careful >> and in a new interview, president biden signaled a change in the u.s. relationship with ally saudi arabia friday, the administration released an intelligence report that finds the saudi crown prince ordered the killing of u.s. resident and journalist jamal khashoggi. >> we are going to hold them accountable for human rights abuses and we're going to make sure that they, in fact, if they want to deal with us, they have to deal with it in a way the human rights abuses are dealt with >> kelly, let's get back to the covid relief bill passed in the house. how long before americans can start getting those $1400 direct payments >> the goal is to have this completely wrapped up and signed by the president by mid march. and that is tied to the expiration of the unemployment benefits that are enhanced at the federal level that expire on ate next and progressives like bernie sanders and ron widen are trying to figure out a way to use the
5:36 am
tax code to incentivize raising wages, not a straight minimum wage, but a way to encourage businesses to increase their wages. that's something that we'll see play out over the next days. peter, kristen >> kelly, thank you. and also this morning, there is some encouraging news in the fight against the coronavirus as johnson & johnson's vaccine is expected to get fda authorization as early as today. now, as of this morning, more than 47 million americans have received their first dose of the vaccine. a number that's expected to raise -- rise by the millions. once the j&j gets the official vaccine go ahead cathy park is outside of johnson & johnson headquarters in new brungs wiy. >> good morning to you if cleared by the fda, the j&j becomes the vaccine given emergency authorization here in the u.s. and it comes at a critical time with vaccines in
5:37 am
high demand and still not enough supply >> this morning, johnson & johnson's covid-19 vaccine is one step closer to receiving approval for emergency use after clearing a critical vote by an fda advisory committee friday >> we need to get this vaccine out. i do believe that the evidence support its safety and ef effectiveness. >> while pfizer and moderna may be more effective at preventing illness, j&j's one shot vaccine offers strong protection against new variants and is 100% effective at preventing hospitalization and death. but as the nation prepares for the rollout of the third vaccine, a sobering update from the cdc. despite weeks of declines in cases and hospitalizations >> the latest data suggests that these declines may be stalling potentially leveling off at still a very high number >> the shift in data comes as rules are loosening across the country. nearly one year after new york was declared the nation's epicenter of the outbreak, the
5:38 am
state is now allowing nursing home visits, a major turning point as new federal data shows covid cases in these facilities are declining. and according to the american health care association, vaccinated nursing homes saw a bigger drop in infections compared to those that were not vaccinated in hard-hit california, the road map to reopening includes setting aside roughly 75,000 doses a week for teachers and school employees the governor has been under increasing pressure to get kids back in school safely. >> we know teachers want to be in front of their students and we know that students want to be in front of their teachers my hope is that we can make it happen >> working toward coming together after so many months apart. an emergency use authorization for the j&j vaccine could happen as soon as today and if it does, the pharmaceutical giant says it will ship approximately 4 million doses of the vaccine
5:39 am
starting next week and that number jumps to 20 million by the end of march kristen, peter >> all eyes will be on the fda today. cathy park, thank you. let's bring in nbc news's dr. vin gupta, associate and professor at the university of washington medical school. good morning we're now talking about the johnson & johnson vaccine. we've talked about it before as a hypothetical, but it's about to become real we know it's highly effective, but less effective than moderna and pfizer should americans have any reservations about taking the j&j vaccine? >> goorning, peter i am saying this from an intensive care unit right now and the answer to that is absolutely not this vaccine is in many ways checks all the boxes it's easy to store it's one shot. and it's going to keep you from seeing me and my colleagues in the hospital, especially in the intensive care unit. this is ano-brainer. you get a vaccine to avert
5:40 am
disease. and to avoid the hospital. that's exactly what this does. there is absolutely no difference between this vaccine, in my view, compared to the pfizer and the moderna vaccine there is no difference we need to make that message clear. >> and just quickly, to punctuate this point, you posted some pictures that show two lungs, one for those with mild illness. you can see that there on the left and the other on the right for those with severe illness here what is the point that this helps demonstrate? >> well, that image on the left there, the clear lungs doesn't have any white in it, that white represents -- that you see on the right, that's pus that's produced from covid infection. that individual, the lungs of the individual on the right, that individual is on life support and ended up passing away mild illness, you'll see clear lungs. there's nothing in there that is exactly what all these vaccines do. they make sure that severe
5:41 am
illness is avoided that image on the right basically is life support requiring icu level care otherwise, stay at home with that image on the left and that's what vaccines do. that's what we need to drive home no percentages, that image >> just staggering images there. we know we are tracking these variants and the cdc says right now there's good news/bad news we're watching cases on the decline, but in some ways, they've also plateaued dwr is that and what do we need to do about it, dr. gupta? >> listen, you know, we've known from the very beginning of this pandemic that one of the biggest drivers of transmission rates is actually mobility. and let's -- i mean, 48 out of 50 states, there's indoor dining is opened. obviously schools are reopening. there's more movement. we are normalizing normal life as we speak. and so what does that mean we still have to be vigilant the message that dr. wolenski
5:42 am
and dr. fauci has been pressing, still 25 to 3,000 deaths a day we are still in the midst of this crisis. what we do know is we are going to be out of this, as long as we ramp vaccinations, by the middle of summer. the question here is how much loss of life are we going to incur additionally until then? that number could be as low as 50,000, it could be as high as an additional 200,000 deaths the choice is ours, but it's all ultimately behavior. so masking, distancing, avoiding all nonessential activities for the next two to three months until we can get herd immunity, more vaccinations in more arms >> dr. gupta, as always, we appreciate what you and the other front line workers are doing. thanks for your time and perspective this morning a reminder, nbc news wants to help you get the covid vaccine track where and when to do it by going to the website, plan your meanwhile, this morning conservatives around the country are gathered in orlando for another day of the annual cpac
5:43 am
conference and it's all about former president trump. with republican politicians singing his praises and the former president set to give thc appearance since he left office. nbc's ali vitali is tracking it all this morning >> top republicans in d.c. grapple with the future of the gop, here in orlando, there's no doubt about it this party is trump's. that is, if he wants it. >> how is it going, cpac or i heard someone earlier phrasing it better ppac that's what it >> an event in former president trump's image, literally republicans here coalescing around trump as the party's leader >> and let me tell you this right now. donald j. trump ain't going the anywhere >> fashion political correctness --
5:44 am
>> these radical liberals, they want to erase our history. >> and reviving the lie he stoked about the 2020 election being stolen >> you know, on january 6th, i objected during the electoral college certification. maybe you heard about it i did. i stood up -- >> some voters still not certain of biden >> you guys brief he was elected? >> we believe that congress certified his election >> but not that he won >> i don't believe he won. >> it's all a prelude to trump taking center stage here sunday, his first public appearance since he left office over a month ago. senate minority leader mitch mcconnell said he would support trump in 2024 as the nominee >> who is the leader of the republican party right now >> i think the people are. i think the people -- it's always the people. i mean, it's people deciding what -- you know, who they're going to support in the future
5:45 am
>> but for some people, that choice may already be clear. nearly 6 in 10 republican voters want trump to run again in 2024. and if he runs, 76% say they would back him but if he doesn't, a cast of conservatives auditioning here to become the trump heir apparent >> and programs aserhaps as ints who is here is who is not. former vice president mike pence was invited, but declined. >> ali where all the action is in orlando, that you can also this morning, a staggering number of people are facing federal charges in connection with the january 6th riot here on capitol hill. the justice department has charged more than 300 people from 40 states for their role in the violent insurrection at least 280 people have been arrested it comes as the "new york times" is reporting that the fbi has now zeroed in on an unnamed assailance in the death of capitol police officer brian
